adidas & The 5th Floor Take on Italy’s Mountainous Dolomite Region

The 5th Floor cycling collective has proven time and time again they’re not afraid of a challenge. Though based in London and New York, the team has conducted rides all over the globe, charting their adventures in envy-inducing, breathtakingly scenic photography. Their latest ride took them to Italy, where they tested their speciality adidas kits in one of the most challenging environments to date: The Dolomite mountain range.

One rider described the course as, “The toughest training camp I’ve ever been involved in – from the sharp switchbacks on the Stelvio Pass to brutal climbs up Mortirolo, the Italian roads really pushed the team to our limits. That said, the feeling of accomplishment each day was amazing, as you’d overcome routes you could never have prepared for, alongside your teammates.”

The team’s efforts were captured by photographer Angus Sung and later used for a co-branded lookbook featuring a range of skin suits, jerseys, bibs, caps, overshoes and warmers in The 5th Floor’s trademark green colorway.
